Inspired by the water lilly, the team of architects set out to mimic the living organism and its ability to naturally make a “bridge” between the water and the land world. With a need to combine and establish environmental relationships within the study area, and between the city of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands, the architects chose to create a masterplan based on an abstraction of a set of water lilies. The plan of the project fuses water, green spaces and agricultural areas to create a sustainable residential system that is harmony with both the urban and natural environments.
